Gold Logie 'cheating scandal' revealed

8.10pm: Hamish Blake and Andy Lee have revealed a Gold Logie 'cheating scandal' in a hilarious swipe at Today host Karl Stefanovic.

While presenting an award at the Logies, the comedic duo spoke of how the Logie votes cannot be rigged as Australians can only vote once as it's tied to your phone number.

But in a hilarious skit, Hamish and Andy called on a young boy Oliver who claimed he had been sitting in a room forced to vote repeatedly for one of the nominees.

"Oliver, who is the person who made you do this?" Hamish and Andy asked, before Oliver claimed it was Karl.

Hamish and Andy asked how many votes he was forced to send in, to which he replied "thousands".

"It's unbelievable. And irrefutable. Mostly unbelievable" the duo joked, before asking Oliver what should happen.

"They should take a few thousand votes from Karl and give them to one of the others," he said.

However, when adding Tom had also won the Logie, she said: "And of course we are not legally allowed to talk about when Tom Gleeson won the Logies."

She was referring to when he was awarded the Logie in 2019 and mocked the awards mercilessly in his acceptance speech.

Tom was stone-faced as the camera cut to him during Julia's sledge.

There’s so many cameras, and people calling out your name, and you want to go and talk to the fans,” she explains.

“I started thinking about my dress probably a month before the nominations even came out.

Who will win the Gold Logie?

4.30pm: Our predictions are in as to who will win the Gold Logie this year. The battle is on between Karl Stefanovic, Sonia Kruger, Hamish Blake, Melissa Leong, Tom Gleeson, Julia Morris and Ray Meagher.

Sonia says it's high time a woman won it this year and believes she deserves it. But time will tell.

Hamish Blake is strongly tipped to take out Aussie TV's highest honour and is likely to win without the help of any funny tactics, recently telling TV Tonight, "If you have to be cajoled into voting for someone's popularity, then I'm not sure they're that popular!"

The success of Blake's show Lego Masters, speaks to his popularity, as does his 1.2 million-strong following on Instagram and the fact that his Hamish and Andy podcast consistently ranks in Apple Podcasts' top 10 in Australia.

SportsBet has given the comedian runaway $1.40 odds, with the next placed nominee Melissa Leong, placed at $6.

Sonia Kruger comes in next at $8.50, followed by Karl at $13.
